My husband and I saw Motown and loved it. The music and tribute acts were excellent, and the mood in the theatre was so festive as you could tell everyone in the theatre was enjoying the show as much as we were. A great night out!

5.0 star rating Rob Bellis from Wiltshire


New Year’s Eve 2.30pm show. Three of us went , 60, 56 & 45. A brilliant show, energy and talent on stage was phenomenal, Gordy was great , Diana Ross was sensational. All of the actors and singers were Spot on , Smokey, Marvin, Stevie, Michael J, supremes and more , Didn’t want it to end, would go again and again and again.

Overacted, singing mostly out of tune, couldn’t understand what they were saying, storyline poor,, glad we got our tickets in the Boxing Day sale, because I wouldn’t have wanted to pay full price to see it, some of the well known songs they didn’t sing all the way through, not for us.

2.0 star rating John from Oxford,


Didn’t live up to expectations for me, sound system poor, couldn’t understand a lot of the talking, song choices could have been better, a lot of the songs they didn’t sing all the way through, didn’t know some of the songs, lead member, was good, Michael Jackson good, Diana Ross average, a lot better musicals out there better than this one.
